Many people should be waiting for the pre-order and arrival of Mi Band 6? However, recently Xiaomi actually has another Mi Watch sports version; it can be regarded as an upgraded version of the Mi Watch Premium Edition at the beginning of this year.
The surface adopts a more flagship round shape, the panel is also changed from LCD to AMOLED, and there is another physical button compared to the premium version; of course, the heart rate, GPS, blood oxygen, and other detection functions must not be there will be less, the “sports version” on the name is the main motion detection mode with up to 117 kinds.
If you want to compare it with the Mi Watch Premium Edition in detail, the Mi Watch Sports Edition removes the circular surface and the screen material is different; the larger difference should be the number of sports modes and the enhanced endurance. In addition, for some people who like watches, round watches seem to have more flexibility compared with square watches; but the beauty of this kind of thing is more different.
Unpacking and appearance
The outer box is designed in gray and black, the front is the rendering of the watch, and the back is the relevant information of the watch; the side has the words and features of Mi WATCH.
The box is divided into two layers. The upper layer has the watch body and the long instruction manual. The bottom layer looks like there are two compartments, but there is actually only one space for the charger.
The biggest difference between the appearance of the Mi Watch Sports Edition and the Mi Watch Premium Edition is in the shape of a round watch. At the same time, the strap is also a general style that can be flattened, not the bent and built-in style of a general sports watch. As for the watch, there are three colors of elegant black, space blue, and ivory white. This time the unboxing is elegant black. The color will be reflected in the connection between the strap and the watch, and the color on the surface and the reverse side is black.
There are two physical buttons simulated by the crown on the right. One is the Home button that integrates the home screen and settings; the other Sport is to quickly call up the sports list and can have additional custom functions (still related to sports).
The back is equipped with related sensors such as heart rate, blood oxygen, etc., there are also pressure and unique energy indexes in the Xiaomi watch, and the two outermost ones of the inner ring are magnetic charging holes.
The strap is a general fixed style, with a slight anti-skid effect on the front side, and the back is gone. The Xiaomi Mi Watch Sports Edition does not officially provide weight data. The actual measurement is about 49g with an electronic scale. The Xiaomi Mi Watch Premium Edition is 32g, and the realme Watch S Pro with similar specifications is a heavier 64g.
The screen specification of the Mi Watch Sports Edition is a 1.39-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 454 x 454. The difference from the Mi Watch Premium Edition is round and square, and the realm Watch S Pro, which has similar specifications, has the same specifications.
On the functional side, the operation is actually not much different from the general smartwatch. The main screen can be moved down to call out the notification message, and the main screen is the main shortcut function field (including settings, display, do not disturb mode, etc.).
At the top of the shortcut function field, there is also Amazon Alexa support, but currently there is no support in Taiwan. If it is abroad, it may be possible…..It may be more convenient if the more common Google Assistant can be used. ?
Sliding left and right on the main screen is a common related function, and the order can also be adjusted through the APP. The Mi Watch Sports Edition provides heart rate, blood oxygen, sleep, stress, energy, weather, music playback, as well as statistics tables including steps, standing time and calories. The music player of the Mi Watch Sports Edition can correctly display the Japanese font, which is a plus!
Various detected data in the watch can also be used to view detailed data in a chart. The heart rate can provide the heart rate change graph of the day and the time display of each interval in the watch.
The Godzilla puppet made a demonstration. It can be seen that it will appear first during detection. Please wear the watch correctly. You can press the detection directly, but the detection will continue to run and there will be no results. You can see that this kind of communication will not appear in the sports version of the Mi Watch. The result of the spirit.
The interface at the start of exercise is also not much different, it will display information such as time, distance, calories, and the Xiaomi Mi Watch Sports Edition can also pre-set the exercise goal.
From the aspect of appearance and function, it is not difficult to see that the strategy of Xiaomi Mi Watch Sports Edition is actually similar to that of Realme Watch S Pro. Both are round watches with a higher-end appearance and specifications, and they are equally competitive. Price and specifications design, basically GPS, blood oxygen and heart rate are already considered a good smart watch. The valuable thing about the sports version of the Mi Watch should be in 117 sports modes and the corresponding Sport shortcut buttons
